We can't believe we didn't stumble upon this masterpiece sooner. Just featured in Esquire a few weeks back, their Heineken-sponsored New York SOHO apartment shows us how a proper lounge room is done; a half-bat cave, half-visual museum aesthetic, with a mirrored kaleidoscope audio-visualizer that reacts to any music or conversation in the room, and deep and low furniture that pairs up nicely with the modern technology that surrounds it.
"The red stars of this relaxing space are two wall-sized mirrored projection surfaces called GHOSTLIGHT™, a reflective visualizer that creates an immersive listening environment allowing visitors to "see" music. Guests can select their own soundtrack and one of several abstract graphic light shows. The 20-plus different visual "environments" are generative art pieces that react to the sound in the room (including both music and conversation), creating a unique and constantly changing graphic environment that seems to magically float on the mirrored surfaces."
Not only are we in love with the overall look of the room, but the visual attention to detail - from the colors of the bar area to the choice of leather on the sleek furniture - discerns its authentic feeling of a lounge space than if you were to just throw a few comfortable chairs together with a portable bar refrigerator.
Did we mention there's a badass music production studio in the room next door? Be sure to check out the rest of the Esquire SOHO tour here.
